Ducks, finishing strong in lost season, top Flames

Rookies Sam Steel and Max Jones scored first-period goals and Ducks continued their strong finish to a lost season with a 3-1 victory over Calgary in Anaheim on Wednesday night.

Captain Ryan Getzlaf also scored and Ryan Miller made 25 saves in his first victory since March 5 for the Ducks. Anaheim’s streak of playoff appearances will end at six next week because of its 5-21-4 midseason slump.

Calgary’s Johnny Gaudreau got his 98th point with an assist on Derek Ryan’s first-period goal, extending his scoring streak to five games and getting close to his first 100-point season.

Senators 4, Rangers 1: Brady Tkachuk had a goal and an assist and Ottawa earned a win in New York. Bobby Ryan, Zack Smith and Brian Gibbons also scored. Anders Nilsson made 27 saves as the league-worst Senators picked up their second win in three games. Colin White also had two assists.

Blackhawks 4, Blues 3: Jonathan Toews scored the lone goal in the shootout after connecting for his career-high 35th in regulation, and Chicago won on home ice. Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist to set a career high for points at 107. Cam Ward stopped 37 shots through overtime and all three St. Louis shooters in the tiebreaker.
